Travel and Tourism

Tourism has been the fastest growing sector for employment in the UK since 2010. Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025, says Visit Britain.

A word from us

The travel industry is a resilient industry; adapting to change and embracing new opportunities and mobile technologies is critical as customers change the way they research, buy and share their holiday and leisure experiences.

The digital, ‘self-service’ market place is a game-changer; inbound tourism to the UK is growing; investment in high-speed rail links across the country will have a positive influence; what future impact on the tourist industry will Brexit have?

Where there are challenges, there are always opportunities!

Our staffs have all had hands-on industry experience, and this is crucial for you.

We also have a de-commissioned mid-section of an air-cabin in our college – you can’t top that for recreating a realistic working environment!

We have excellent links with travel and leisure companies, many of whom use our facilities for training.

Whatever your ambitions are, our expertise and support will help you achieve your goals, and get you ahead of the pack in terms of what you can offer your future employer.
